    First Look At Uma Thurman As Marilyn Monroe In 'Smash'

    NBC has been pushing hard to make a big hit out of their musical drama "Smash." A soundtrack of the tunes from the show is on the way, it has already been renewed for a second season, and as the first season winds down, a pretty big star has been enlisted to help sweep in ratings.

    Berlinale 2012 Review: 'Bel Ami' Starring Robert Pattinson Fails To Seduce

    From behind, we watch a man in ragged clothes look longingly through the window of a fancy Belle Epoque Parisian restaurant. Inside, richly attired women whisper secrets over brimful glasses of champagne and decadent platters laden with food. Later, the hungry man in his mean garret relives the mome...

    Uma Thurman, Viola Davis, Lindsay Lohan, Paul Giamatti, Evan Rachel Wood, Zoe Saldana & More Join Marilyn Monroe Doc 'Fragments'

    So, did you think the brief love affair with Marilyn Monroe was going to end once the awards season was over, and "My Week With Marilyn" faded from view? Guess again. The famed actress is one of the few Hollywood icons who continues to fascinate, influence and be commemorated and a star st...

    Watch: Robert Pattinson Sleeps His Way Around Paris In The Trailer For 'Bel Ami'

    The next twelve months will be something of a pivot point for Robert Pattinson, as by this time next year, the "Twilight" series, which made his name, will be over, and the risk of him becoming a vampiric version of Mark Hamill -- never able to escape the shadow of his mega franchise -- wi...

    TWC Picks Up 'The Iron Lady' While FilmDistrict Nabs 'Playing The Field' And 'Arabian Nights'

    The Weinstein Company may have another Oscar darling on their hands. A year after grabbing $400 million worldwide and scads of major awards for “The King’s Speech,” The Brothers W paid $7 million for the domestic rights (via Deadline) to another film about British aristocracy, nabbing “The Iron Lady” starring Meryl Streep as Margaret Thatcher. Producers only showed five minutes of the film before the bidding started between the Weinsteins, Summit and Relativity, though all someone had to say was “Streep as Thatcher” to ensure this would be a major purchase and, as planned by TWC, a high profile late ‘11 release. Expect it to be a big dog in t...

    Jeremy Renner May Star In 'You’re Not You' With Hilary Swank, Clive Owen & Uma Thurman Go 'Blind'

    More Casting Bits: Alice Eve & Liev Schreiber Join Director Mark Pellington, Craig Bierko Will Play A 'Stooges' VillainProducers in Cannes talk loose. There's a bevy of talks, negotiations and (shudder) pre-attachment deals going on around the Croisette this week, but don't be surprised if all the actors announced don't actually appear in the films they're touted to be in (see last year when, for example Amy Adams was listed in the original version of John Hillcoat's "The Wettest County," which died and then came back to life this year). A lot of these are early teasing promises to get investors involved and sometimes they work, sometimes the...

    We Read It: Casting Quentin Tarantino's Slavery/Spaghetti Western Epic 'Django Unchained'

    You’ll recall in 2008 we did, what we thought, was a very good job of casting Quentin Tarantino’s “Inglourious Basterds” (some of us are still convinced our picks were better than Q.T.’s, but that’s another story). And unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know that Tarantino has recently fini...

    Max Winkler Talks Wes Anderson Influence On 'Ceremony' & Losing Jesse Eisenberg To 'Social Network'

    Young Filmmaker Talks About Making His First Feature, And Being Comfortable With His Influences And Own SkinWhile "Ceremony" is likely to be the introduction for most to the work of Max Winkler, many have been tipped off to his talent after seeing him work with Michael Cera and Clark Duke in the appropriate titled (and very funny) webseries, "Clark & Michael," which you can check out here. But that's just the tip of the iceberg. Winkler has been making his name on a number of brewing projects including "The Adventurer's Handbook" which he co-wrote with pal Jonah Hill and frequent collaborator Matt Spicer, not to mention being drafted with the...
